Re: Snow

... Thank you! I hope only last picture drive you to a nostalgy direction. :) Yes, you could easily say that I'm more strongly drawn to the scene in last photo.. :) If only the more modern buildings in the background had not been there, the photo scene would have been a perfect nostalgia refering t...

Re: Snow

All lovely and nostalgic-looking subjects...
But there's something about the snow-covered trucks and the flimsy / fleeting powdery snow flowing in the wind in the last shot; the old model, rusty-coloured trucks make this scene almost melancholic ..

Thanks for sharing, ValeryD.

Here are some of my Sri Lanka photos: http://www.bakubo.com/Galleries%202/Sri%20Lanka/index.html Hi Henry, :) That's a fine trip you'...

Challenge #67: "Capturing Christmas'/Holidays'/New Year's Spirit and Joy.." - 11 Dec 2017-11 Jan 2018-Submissions

. Hello and welcome to reviving of the challenges. :) Let's try and capture the spirit of the month of December which accommodates Christmas, the Holy Days of many other devotees and the New Year.

The ritual headwear of the monks are impressive ! :) One can even lose one's balance and even tip over on a rather windy day with an eccentric hat like this.

Thanks for sharing, Sig.

Re: Trip to Cuba

. Nice selection, ValeryD; :) The rainbow panorama looks even better when viewed in your gallery. The begonville and and the rain on the terrace with the beating raindrops like a tulle curtain looks interesting as well. The ambient lights helped a lot with the curtain look. Thanks for sharing, Yildiz

Re: Trip to Cuba

. Hi . Lovely photos, ValeryD. :) Scenes that one can't see in many other countries...What exactly is happening in the first photo with that small animal on the woman's left shoulder and a crown being placed on her head? A rather odd combination of elements. : ) Thanks for sharing, Yildiz I'm not re...

Re: Trip to Cuba

. :D What can I say ? You've been to some interesting places and colourful events, ValeryD ! I actually loved all your photos from this collection: the cave with an actual river running through is like a time passage to ancient times. I also had a look at your Gallery and all shots are very interest...
